The Awesome Sound of Classic Outboard Reverb Processors – At Your Fingertips
Four Classic Studio Reverbs, One Convenient Plug-In
CSR Classik Studio Reverb is a suite of four high-end studio-quality reverbs modeled after popular outboard classics. With CSR, you have over 100 adjustable parameters per unit, allowing for ultimate tweaking and perfecting of your sound. Now everyone can afford the quality sound of classic outboard workhorse signature reverbs in their studio in a convenient low-CPU-usage plug-in format.
CSR’s four reverb modules are now part of the T-RackS Custom Shop, which means they can be used in the T-RackS CS processing chain like all the other modules. They can also be run as single plug-ins in VST, RTAS, AAX and Audio Units compatible hosts, that support 64 bit operation.
If you already are a T-RackS CS user, just log into the Custom Shop and click the TRY/BUY button on the CSR Classik Studio Reverbs modules, to try them out for free or purchase them.
If you aren't a T-RackS Custom Shop user yet, access to your user area to get your FREE T-RackS Custom Shop serial number and download the product installer. Once you have installed T-RackS Custom Shop, log into the Custom Shop and click the TRY/BUY button on the CSR Classik Studio Reverbs modules to try them out for free, or purchase them.If you are a registered user of CSR v1.0 select the “RESTORE MY GEAR” function in the Custom Shop (under the MY GEAR menu): the four CSR modules will be available under the T-RackS shell and as single plug ins (CSR v1.0 and v4.0 can be installed on the same computer).
Plate, Hall, Room & Inverse - The Only Reverb Plug-ins You'll Ever Need
CSR Classik Studio Reverb offers a suite of four high-quality reverb plug-ins, Plate, Hall, Room and Inverse, which are available as a single product, or separately in the T-RackS Custom Shop.
All have been painstakingly modeled to accurately reproduce the signature sound of acclaimed high-quality outboard reverb units. With myriad options and parameters to choose from, Classik Studio Reverb is a comprehensive and great-sounding package that you can adapt to any mix situation with ease.
Dual Mode Operation with 100 Adjustable Parameters per Unit
CSR operates within two modes: Easy and Advanced. The Easy mode provides access to basic reverb controls like mix, decay time and level, diffusion, buildup, slope, etc., depending upon which of the four units is being used. Advanced Mode delves more deeply into the fine-tuning and response of the unit. Plus, there's a handy Macro feature that allows you to deeply assign controls to one of four macro sliders for simultaneous adjustment of multiple parameters. What that really means is you have an unprecedented amount of control over how your reverb responds. And it's all easy.
How it Works
CSR makes applying the perfect reverb extremely easy… and extremely advanced. Each module has two modes: Easy and Advanced. And each mode is amazingly intuitive with the critical parameters and controls beautifully laid out for an immediate great sound. Plus, all knobs and macro controls can be automated through your host's sequencer allowing you to break with tradition and create all kinds of creative reverb effects.
Easy Mode puts the most commonly used controls on the front panel of the plug-in, making CSR a quick-and-easy solution when a high-quality reverb is needed. You shape the sound using only six parameters: Mix, Diffusion, Reverb Time, Low Frequency Gain, High Frequency Cutoff, and High Frequency Dampening; giving you full control over the main character of the reverb.
If you need more control than is available in Easy Mode, CSR provides Advanced Mode. Here you will find an array of highly developed modeling and shaping controls that are hard to find in any reverb - over 100 parameters per unit to be precise. All parameters, the Modulation Matrix, and Macro Controls, can be adjusted and changed to create the reverb effect that you need, tailored to the very finest detail. The Modulation Matrix is an 8x8 structure; meaning that 8 modulation sources can manipulate 8 destinations. For example, to apply an envelope to your reverb time, you can fine-tune the tail for a specific reverb sound. Or, use an LFO to modulate the reverb image, creating movement in the acoustic space.
Macros: A New Level Of Texture and Innovative Programming Potential
Macro controls can be created allowing complex sweeping changes in Classik Studio Reverb's effects, changing virtual environments at your command. You can associate up to 8 different CSR controls to a simple Macro slider, therefore making morphing between different reverb settings easier than ever. In both Easy and Advanced Modes, it is always simple to find that perfect sound. A convenient A/B comparison allows you to quickly apply modifications and compare between two reverb settings in a snap.
The "Green" Reverb
Bottom line: CSR saves energy, and we're talking the CPU kind. While impulse reverbs are popular because of their particular emulation of environment reverberation, they are inherently CPU-intensive and typically lack the particular musical sound and editing possibilities that famous outboard studio digital reverbs have always offered. CSR not only puts less demand on your processor, it’s much more flexible than an impulse-based plug-in. Now you have the ability to manipulate and shape reverbs from a number of angles, giving you performance that mirrors and even rivals high-end
